Rucky Chuck Farside and Green Gate
The Greengate checkpoint is located part way down Sliger
Mine Road, a steep dirt road, often rutted if the winter was unkind. 4WD
vehicles are recommended.
The Rucky Chuck Farside checkpoint is located at the
extreme end of Sliger Mine Road, directly across the river from the main Rucky
Chucky Aid Station.
Rucky Chuck Farside is the point where the runners leave
the river, and most will be doing it at night. They will be tired and possibly
disoriented. It is not uncommon for a runner to decide at the near side to
continue, only to give up on the far side after fording the snowmelt-cold
Rucky Chuck Farside requires VHF and UHF mobile capability
with a Good Mobile, Base Station or Yagi Antenna. Must have Battery or
Generator power only.
